This recent update enables Nigerian publishers receive Adsense earning directly into their Nigerian bank account, which is called ‘Wire Transfer’
Wire transfer is a fast, secure, and reliable alternative to receiving payments by check.
With this change, Google would be discontinuing express delivery secure checks and courier tracking
Unlike the secure check payment option, Google doesn’t charge a fee to send wire transfer payments. This is an advantage in this New Payment option.
As part of this upgrade, your earnings will begin to accrue in U.S. Dollars to match your selected payment currency.
